, caterpillar, bellweathers for the economy, it sends a weak signal about the economy. sooner or later, gravity will overwhelm the central bank easing. the question is, does it happen before or after the election? >>neil: we live in the moment and i do not dispute what you are saying. but i do say the barometer has been right 90 percent of the time. as the quarter goes before the election, so go the election for or against the incumbent. this are many other barometers that point in a variety different ways so this is one of them. it doesn't necessarily mean anything. i am wondering if what this is saying for president obama is that people are going to look at their financial statements, if they are lucky enough to have accounts and they are up, or they will look at their home values if they are lucky enough to have a home going up in value and they feel, on paper, some of this wealth affect we hear about. you dismiss that? >>guest: well, it is a good point that perhaps what this is telling us is that bernanke at the federal reserve is throwing the kitchen sink at this to stimulate it through th

under some of the strongest sanctions today. oil exports have been correct. the iranian economy has been hit hard. it does have an effect on the economy. we must face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. [applause] red lines do not lead to war. they prevent war. look at nato's charter. it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. red lines have helped keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century. and help preserve the peace for decades. it is the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression. if it were drawn in the 1930's, world war ii might have been avoided. the first gulf war might have been avoided. clear, red lines will also work with iran. earlier this year, they thre

. we have one set of the economy functioning at a level where the competition is on the wrong level. it needs to be on the level of performance and outcomes. patience if i hear all the time are increasingly frustrated, even distrustful of the health care system. they have limited options and they turn to there're insurance companies and they feel like they are appealing a cell phone bill. they cannot get through. doctors are also frustrated with health care system. we have a system where 46% of doctors say they are burned out, according to a mayo clinic study of the two months ago. when doctors say they are burned out, the performance will not be as good. host: dr. makary, when it comes to accountability, i want to go back to canada to talk about his insurance bills that he received, -- back to kenneth who talked about the insurance bills that he received, etc., should there be a priceless? -- price list? guest: you should be able to find out the average cost of something even before you have paid for it. the medical center at my home town hospital said you could have a heart operat
the economy's getting better. i trustresident obama now to lehe ecy. i m who's up against huge unemployment numbers. you can rattle through all the economic data that should not be good for president obama. and yet in three or four states that matter, the tide is switching on those questions. >> don't you think florida is shocking? of those three, i tught florida nine points is the most ki >>nnepoll, florida four points in "the washington post" poll. i've said it for months, any repuican candidate that's losing the state of flori has serious problems. >> willie's right, the economic numbers are huge. the othething that relates is e geer g. inseesuiipia polls. the gender gap is gigantic. why did the romney campaign have as their surrogates bay buchanan and liz cheney and kelly ayotte? because they have a huge gender problem, and they're not addressingt with these daily attacks on the president's so-called es >> ry o"leno" last night. i didn't see the whole thing, but the clips i saw, i don't know. i know that's tough to say, but the relatability issue is constant. >> you know, and there's a
of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem right now remains him. he's not driving a consistent message. the president does -- says something, the republicans get all excited about it. they treat it like a gaffe. they'll talk about it for a day. and then they'll move on to something else. the biggest danger to me right now for the republican party are two things. one is that you l
in adopting measures to react to the international economy. that is why the mexican chairmanship decided to work hard to build a much broader consensus. we brought to the process the largest number of countries possible and listen to all the sectors we could, to the unions, to businessmen, to specific organizations, to young people as we brought all of their proposals to the pleary of the g-20. we had many administrative meetings. we have managed to bring divergent positions closer together. this was crucial to insure that the g-20 that we held in los cabos would seek -- would achieve the significant progress. months prior to this, there was a doubt as that -- as to the viability of the euro as a single currency for european countries. at the meeting, we endorsed with the support of the rest of the group, we endorsed a robust commitment not only to the bureau as a monetary unit but also to financial, physical, and political unity of europe zone. zone we brought in commitments from the international financial community. and also the international monetary fund. among the most significant
of europe are. the economy is teetering on the edge of recession. the were seen can do is jacked up taxes on small businesses and entrepreneurs or job creators. that makes it all the more likely to push us into a recession. and for the 23 million people who struggling for work, the worst thing to do is hurt the small businesses that create those jobs. >> it is fair to say that the president has reduced taxes. he has reduced taxes for small businesses 18 times. he cut taxes for '95 -- for 95% of families out there. the question is do we ask everybody to sacrifice? when you look at the marginal rate in the united states, when ronald reagan took office, the marginal office with 71% to 72%. it is interesting to me that the greatness that people speak of in terms of the united states, when we talk about the 1940's, the 1950's, the 1960's, 1970's, the marginal rate that folks paid was much greater. nobody says we will go back to that. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had marginal rates that were a little bit higher than they are now and we had some of the best economic times that
. >> one market that they're particularly excited about is saudi arabia, the region's largest economy. we keep talking about the risks that come from swings in oil prices at least for the audi economy. and stability in the country. he says that's not really the biggest risk. at least not from a brush capital perspective. >> for the start, we have a business in the country, a large group of investors and they're focused in development. the issues are not about whether or not the economic opportunities are there. i think they are. i think saudi arabia and in terms of individual sectors, they'll perform extremely well. it's about the politics, not the economy. i think the people generally speaking are quite happy with the stimulus package and with the political system. >> tensions indeed remain high especially in some towns in the eastern province of the kingdom. of course we also got a start on the broader concept and developments in the arab spring. why he chose india over china when it comes to their broader investment strategy. and of course we'll talk about the art of private equity, as
elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been on things like a government takeover of health care and apologizing for america abroad." in our fact check that day, we quoted what obama had said in overseas trips, including an assertion that at times the u.s. had acted contrary to its own ideals or had been selective in where it sought to promote democracy. it had sometimes shown an arrogance toward allies. we pointed out that when he made those kinds of statements that suggested the u.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to e
many terms of iran too, but here's another man who could be talking about the economy and people who really need help. after all, don't forget that after the revolution, tahrir square where people in egypt really rose up and wanted to change during the arab spring, what happened? at this point they have an economy that's in very bad shape. they need help. there was a very big delegation from the united states of gigantic companies that went trying to drum up investment in egypt, and so their problem too is giving jobs to the people in egypt and making these revolutions pay off. >> we played a little of what ahmadinejad said to the united nations earlier today. this is a common theme that he uses over and over, and he essentially talks about blaming everybody else for iran's problems. >> i do not believe that muslims, christian, jews, hindus, buddhists, and others have any problems among themselves. or are hostile against each other or live together in an atmosphere of peace. they are all devoted to the kaz of justice, purity, and law. the biz malsituation of the world and the situati
